Seasons Spa – Unlock Your Emotional Journey

Seeking a spa treatment is not only just for the basic R&R (rest and relaxation) but also to rejuvenate our body, mind and soul. When a skillful therapist that really listens to your needs and eventually manages to ease your fatigued muscles is truly an added value to your treatment, that makes you become an even better you. The Seasons Spa at The Conrad Bangkok has it all. mylifestylenews writes.

On the 7th floor of the Conrad hotel in Bangkok hides a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city. Not only the gigantic recreational swimming surrounded by lush tropical greens, a dedicated children's playground, specially designed sky jogging track, tennis courts, well equipped gym as well as the intimate Seasons Spa, this luxurious lifestyle floor is entirely dedicated to fitness and relaxation.

Boasting 11 spacious spa treatment rooms and some rooms come with hydrotherapy facilities, the amenities also include a sunken Japanese tub, whirlpool spa and steam room. Seasons Spa offers an exclusive array of spa and leisure experiences with a choice of relaxing Balinese, Hawaiian and Swedish massages all dedicated to the luxury of well being.

The extensive spa menu features a diverse selection of ‘east-meets-west’ therapies , all designed to release and restore. You may indulge yourself either in an energizing and cleansing body scrub, muscle-soothing back massage, refreshing therapeutic facials or a choice of detoxifying spa packages that helps to bring balance and wellness to your body.

Premium products such as Aromatherapy Associates are used in Seasons Spa for a variety of rejuvenating treatments complimenting each specialized treatment that is designed to reduce stress, energize and cater to your specific skin requirements and promote feeling of balance relaxation.

Set in a cozy surrounding, Seasons Spa transports you into an organically designed, locally inspired haven of harmony and lightness with warmth and familiarity, surprising intuitiveness and a refreshing approach. Soft candlelight, gentle and spiritual spa music adds a soulful touch to the restful ambiance while you explore your inner stillness and calm.

After a brief personal consultation, a 60 minutes <Balinese-Thai Yoga Massage> was recommended by the Spa Manager. This healing therapy combines traditional Balinese and Thai techniques, using the Balinese firm finger and palm pressure as well as Thai pressure point technique.

Incorporating the harmonious synergy of aromatherapy and the healing power of touch, my therapist surely worked deeply on my sore muscles, finding the right spots to add the right pressure to applying the natural aromatic essential oil that gave my body a calm and relaxing contemplation. If we were not having a dinner appointment ahead, I could have opted for a 2 hour treatment, as 60 minutes was simply too short to get pampered by such a heavenly treatment to the optimum state of wellbeing.

Whether you want to leave feeling relaxed, revitalized or restored, finding the right spa that understands and suits your needs is essential in return for treatments that induce an altered state of consciousness and create a deep sense of inner peace, wellbeing and tranquility. Seasons Spa is there to ensure you to unlock your emotion and enjoy a rejuvenating journey.

Caudalie Introduces Dark Spot Correcting Glycolic Night Cream

Caudalie Introduces Dark Spot Correcting Glycolic Night Cream with grape brightening power 62 x more powerful than Vitamin C gives you a natural glow and radiance renewal in 8 hours. For centuries women have longed to achieve brighter skin and combat pigmentation, from investment in laser treatments to whitening beauty products. Recent research has identified that dark spots occur most commonly in women aged from 20 to 60. Surprisingly, only 53% of them knew the causes of dark spots which are determined by internal hormonal fluctuations and external aggressors including sun exposure and photo-sensitive whitening products. The appearance of dark spots holds you back from having radiant skin.

Powering the Vinoperfect collection is the precious Viniferine, giving you the natural brightening solution from the vineyard. The iconic and best-selling Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is the No. 1 anti-dark spot product in France over 10 years, with each bottle sold every 30 seconds around the world! The New Vinoperfect Dark Spot Correcting Glycolic Night Cream is launched under the highly regarded brightening series, designed with Viniferine to tackle any pigmentation and time-release glycolic acid to transform skin gently in 8 hours. This latest spot-targeting night-time ally powers up your brightening skincare regimen, revealing a new level of clarity and luminosity upon awakening.

The collection contains no parabens, phenoxyethanol, paraffin, mineral oils, phtahlates, sodium laureth sulfate or any animal ingredients. The highly natural and gentle whitening formula promises a healthy and truly lit-from-within glow.


CHOPARD Presents The Magical Setting Collection

CHOPARD presents its scintillating new collection, Magical Setting, at the Presidential Suite of the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong recently with a dazzling and spectacular re-imagination of classic Haute Joaillerie, the Magical Setting Collection celebrates the freedom and boundless potential of femininity.

Flowers are the leitmotifs of this exquisite event - guests are first greeted y an interrupted archway of precious blossoms. Dominated by a palette of rouge and gold, the event space becomes a playground for the imagination - a bejewelled domicile in which lustre, lightness and sophistication focus the attention.

The brilliant settings of the collection are combined with elegantly faceted gemstones and diamonds to play and excite amidst the rich hanging greenery that border the walls and memorialize the majesty of the moment.

At the end of a marvellous promenade, guests are brought to the living room, where comfort and ease are complemented by the entertainment: the subtle melodies of a harp and piano play accompaniment to a ballet show – a musical synonym for the elegance, poise and visual poetry that has been interwoven into the designs of the Collection.

Exciting and sophisticated, the ballet dance is a visual metaphor for the craftsmanship and vision of CHOPARD’s creations – freedom of form, lightness of motion, beautiful contours rendered into sublime and natural forms. The performance serves as the climax of a day of celebration, with models also showcasing the pieces throughout the extraordinary event.

The Collection’s centrepiece, the floral cluster, stands proudly amidst a bed of blooming roses. Here, the talent of Caroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic Director of CHOPARD, takes centre stage: the classicism, nobility and versatility of the traditional floral cluster transforms into a creation of lightness and femininity, of starry elegance and universal excitement.

A natural development of CHOPARD’s classic Happy Diamonds, Magical Setting is an expression of radiant jewellery at its most wondrous. Each cluster is centred on a significant single stone and encircled throughout with other unusually large stones, giving the classic design an unexpected edge of bold modernity. While the centre stone of each cluster is set in barely-claws, the surrounding stones are held in place as if by magic, with no visible means of support, and no metal visible from the front or top of the jewel.

Representing a bold step forwards in the world of classic Haute Joaillerie, Magical Setting is a testament of what jewellery truly means to the House of CHOPARD. In this new generation of a timeless classic, CHOPARD has created something that is sensational and seductive, feminine and powerful, as awe-inspiring as it is free.

HUGO BOSS x Porsche Align International Cooperation

HUGO BOSS x Porsche will be joining forces with involvement in Formula E racing. In its capacity as an official partner to the sport, HUGO BOSS – which already boasts a long tradition of motorsports sponsorship – has been successfully engaged in the electric-powered racing series since the end of 2017. From December 2019, the start of the next championship season, Porsche too will be joining the Formula E circuit with its own works team – outfitted by HUGO BOSS. The fashion group will also be the official outfitter to the entire Porsche motorsports team worldwide. The shared passion for racing, and a fascination with perfect design and innovation, inspired the creative minds at HUGO BOSS to produce the "Porsche x BOSS" capsule collection. Its standout features include premium leather and wool materials presented in the Porsche and HUGO BOSS colors of silver, black and red. Starting in March 2019, a range of menswear styles from the debut capsule collection will be available online and at BOSS stores.

"HUGO BOSS and Porsche are both synonymous with outstanding innovation and consummate quality," commented Mark Langer, CEO of HUGO BOSS AG. "We have been working successfully with motorsports over recent years and decades. That is why, with the future-oriented Formula E, I am especially pleased that we are taking our cooperation to a new level." "Formula E is an exceptionally attractive racing series," said Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG. "It offers us the perfect environment to strategically evolve our vehicles in terms of efficiency and sustainability. We're looking forward to being on board in the 2019/20 season.


Jojo - A True Taste of Italy

Known for its distinctly modern and contemporary concept, Jojo at The St. Regis Bangkok serves generous and unpretentious Italian food with a true taste of Italy. mylifestylenews writes.

Let alone the already infamous Thai gastronomy in Bangkok, the City of Angel is such a melting pot with influences and inspiration from around the globe. We all can be easily spoiled by choices with traditional food to elevated cuisines for what this city has to offer and Italian food is to no stranger here especially for travelers who frequent the City of Angels as well as the local foodies alike.

Situated at the ground level of The St. Regis Bangkok, Jojo is set in a modern and cozy ambience with high tables and with an intimate bar as well as a semi open kitchen which also features a built in pizza oven. Natural lighting floods in from the ceiling high glass windows, encompassed by a small little “secret garden” and contrasting the elegance of the interior. Wood crafted statues illuminate the already stylish atmosphere with a giant chandelier hanging in the middle of the main dining area as well as other white hanging lamps to give a touch of classic modernity.

The dining area in Jojo is bigger than you may have thought, with a wooden glassed wall cabinet decorated with photo frames separating the main dining area with another section further in, equally elegant and visually compelling. Through the artistic use of sliding panels and ambient lighting, the restaurant creates a changing character and atmosphere during day and night.

True to its Italian heritage, Jojo conjures up an authentic Italian cuisine with a creative and contemporary edge, while the food is in no fuss - simple and true to its sense and not complicated. The menu combines tradition with innovation, focusing on slow food and authentic ingredients, using seasonal produce from the finest producers.

The semi open kitchen in Jojo

Through an updating of the gastronomic tradition and paying tribute to the Italian heritage, the menu offers a wide range of selection from most of the Italian classic must-haves.

Amuse bouche : Burrata cheese with sun dried tomato

We started off from the Antipasti by placing our order with the <Polipo con Patate e Olive> A whole crispy octopus tentacle that was deep fried to golden brown for the crispy texture on the outside and to remain juicy inside served with potatoes, Jerusalem artichoke chips and accompanied by white vinegar and olives. A great start for our Italian gastronomy sojourn for the evening.

<Cappesante Affumicate>
Two lightly pan seared Hokkaido scallops presented on a glass bowl and topped with both thin sliced green apple and smoked apple that gave a tangy flavor to the palette. A good balance in taste!

<Insalata di Rucola e Fruitti Rossi>
A side order of wild rocket salad made the best compliment to the coming meat dishes. Simply refreshing and a taste from the farm with red berries, beetroots, raspberry and tossed with balsamic vinegar dressing and extra virgin olive oil. Simplicity at its best!

<Fettuccine Alfredo>
We felt like having a rich pasta dish by ordering the homemade tagliatelle with ham, mushroom, green peas served in Castelmagno cheese. The tossing of the tagliatelle was down by the table as a presentation allowing you to experience the rich and creaminess of the pasta which absorbed as much cheese as possible while it is still hot and steamy.

<Maialino da Latte>
For the secondi, we couldn’t help not ordering the roasted Italian suckling pig. This succulent suckling pig was juicy and tender, with the skin top being roasted to the utmost crunchiness to delight your palette; topped with the aromatic chestnut foam and coffee powder to give an alternative palate that enhanced the meat. A bottle of Pio Cesare Langhe Oltre 2014 was recommended for its glorious nose with a beautiful flowery bouquet accented with earthy leathery notes and medium to long finish. Oltre is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera with a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It is unquestionably a perfect choice for the suckling pig as well as two other meats to follow.

<Piccione alla Griglia>
Grilled squab pigeon was next brought to our table. The gamy and fleshy pigeon is another triumphant dish in Jojo that was cleverly paired with black olives and pistachio puree. Not too rich yet finding the right balance for both meat and the accompanying sauces. It works!

<Costolette di Angello e Senape>
The last secondi to share was the Grilled Australian lamb chops served with a generous portion of mushroom and Dijon mustard. We loved the distinctive char grilled taste on this meaty lamb chop. Quite a big serving indeed!

<Torta di Rose>
For dessert, we opted for the a-la-minute Brioche cake, curled up beautifully and topped with the powdery icing sugar with a round scoop of lemon sorbet and citrus sauce. The best way to enjoy this dessert is with a half spoon full of the lemon sorbet and mix it with the citrus sauce, then put them on the brioche and slice it down for a mouthful portion. It is “deliciosio”!

The warm and attentive service in Jojo is another plus, beckoning diners on a delightful culinary journey. Intriguing wines in the connoisseur’s wine cellar were thoughtfully composed. Italian food is meant to share, as it is part and parcel when food is served. For an intimate get-together or a romantic Italian affair with a true Italian taste that adds to the enhancement, you'll love dining in Jojo.

BALLY Spring 2019 Eyewear Collection

 Bally unveils its Spring 2019 eyewear collection, the first of its partnership with the renowned luxury eyewear specialist, Marcolin Group. Combining craftsmanship, innovation and elegance the collection features both sunglass and optical offerings for men and women. Paying homage to the warm glow of a California sunset, the eyewear reflects the ‘Wanderlust’ mood and palette of Bally’s SS2019 collection. Retro-luxe styles with a distinctly modern aesthetic ode to a quaint nostalgia and laid-back ease while oversized square acetate frames with a shield-like fit narrate a more glamorous persona.

Elsewhere a geometric take on classic pilot style frames host yellow and pink lenses which colour the world in tones evocative of the innovative 1970s photography of Stephen Shore and Joel Sternfeld, who together influenced the palette and inspiration for Bally’s new season collection.  Gold, rose gold and palladium metals are used to frame the new season lenses alongside impactful nuances of burgundy, tortoiseshell and black for the statement making acetate frames. Bally’s iconic heritage nods are delicately integrated throughout the collection adding subtly elegant branding.

The Bally Stripe signifier, evoking the brand’s Swiss origins, is reinterpreted as an optical effect in the slim temples, acetate bonds or elegant leather inserts of the frames. The Bally Grip is distinctively found on the front of frames or nose pads, inspired by the Sparta Grip first used by the brand in the 1920s on the sturdy soles of hiking boots. Prioritising functionality alongside creative design, the eyewear collection includes Smart Fit models suited to all face shapes as well as Asian Fit frames.
